Can someone decipher this for me please?


[link to this post]
 
I have been trying to find out when my local cabinet will be fibre-enabled and have managed to get this info, not 100% sure what it all means though, in particular the 'deployed' bit, can someone just let me know what it all means please?

Cabinet 26, you should be able to find it
100 means every line in the post code will get FTTC, unless there is more than one entry for the postcode. It is essential to Find All, not just Find.
Deployed = Yes means it is currently scheduled, in phase 7a, but when that is just depends.
Estimated speed, 63.81 times what you get now

Thanks for the info, i guess it is just a case of waiting now - quite like the sound of 63 times my current (to be fair, very poor) speed!! (what are the odds that turns out to be a bit optimistic ?!?)

The odds are pretty good. What connection speed do you get now? (Not the download speed). I'v just checked the postcode as well, and thats's the only cabinet for it. Go find it smile.

What does this checker say about your estimated speed?

Yeah, that will be the one, about 250meters from where I live, so hopefully I should get a decent speed, the line is pretty much a straight line to my place.

Regarding the google link to the checker that gave me the info, I can't find it now but got there through clicking a link in a post on this forum, not sure where unfortunately.

My current connection speed is around the 3600kbps mark which is pretty good considering by told me I would be lucky to get 2mbps
